Tidal Bore Park

Don't bother with this one. Due to some volume of water re-directed along the way, there is no tidal bore to be seen anymore. 15 years ago it was impressive, but this time we waited until the set time came and went...and there was nothing.

Tidal Bore Park

The tidal bore is water flowing upriver twice a day from the tides in the Bay of Fundy. In Bore Park, a clock displays the time of the next bore, and extensive bleachers accommodate visitors. We went at 3:00 AM, and sat in the dark and waited. Shortly before the scheduled arrival time, klieg lights illuminated the area like a sporting event. All those lights and all those bleachers, just for my wife and I. Not as impressive during the day. Go at night.
